DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--BearCom, a nationwide provider of wireless communications equipment and solutions, today announced that it has received the International Award of Excellence from the Society for Technical Communication (STC) for BearCom’s corporate magazine, Today’s Wireless World.
Today’s Wireless World is a printed and digital publication that was originally established in 2006 by BearCom. It reports on recent developments in wireless technology and communicates those developments in layman’s language to executives and managers who are in charge of deploying wireless technologies for their businesses or organizations.
The magazine was conceived by Kent Huffman, Chief Marketing Officer at BearCom, who saw an opportunity to showcase the products and solutions of BearCom and its industry leading partners, such as Motorola, Icom America, Vertex Standard, Sprint Nextel, RIM/BlackBerry, Sony, and Firetide, among others. “We needed a way to communicate to our customers and prospects the many compelling benefits of wireless technology, as well as the products and services that can deliver those benefits,” said Huffman. “Over the past four years, Today’s Wireless World has become a very effective vehicle for accomplishing that objective.”
Kristin Kirkham, the Immediate Past President of the Lone Star chapter of the STC, noted that Today’s Wireless World was awarded the honor based on innovation, style, and clarity, among other factors. “An STC International Award of Excellence indicates the judges found the entry consistently met high standards in all areas and demonstrates an exceptional understanding of technical communication principles,” said Kirkham. “More specifically, Today’s Wireless World is a unique marketing vehicle that combines a journalistic approach with a corporation’s desire to build a community around its customers, prospects, and partners. BearCom has effectively demonstrated that these two principles can co-exist in an award-winning magazine.”
An archive of all previously published issues of Today’s Wireless World, including standard and interactive PDFs, is available in the Resource Library section on BearCom.com.
